With a fanbase that rivaled Star Trek's, The Junior Defenders was one of the top TV hits of the late '70s. 25 years following the show's sudden cancellation, a crazed fan named Norman is still obsessed with the show. In his mania, Norman treks across the country in a stolen Winnebago, kidnapping the four washed-up former child stars, Jill, Mitch, Jimmy, and Tommy, from his beloved childhood program. The kidnappings spark a national media frenzy. Once in Hollywood, Norman takes over a soundstage and forces the cast at gunpoint to act in his brand-new episode of The Junior Defenders.
The film features cameo appearances by Pauly Shore, Florence Henderson, Peter Tork, Michael Dukakis, and Kevin Smith.
Originally titled Groupies, the film's principal photography occurred in February–March 1997.
